Folland Sports have filled two vacancies at the club – and created another in the process.

Barry Morse, chairman of the overall Folland Sports & Social Club, has agreed to take over as football chair for the time being following Roy Kingdon’s mid-October departure.

Meanwhile the role of first-team manager has gone to Brad Hartill who stepped in on a caretaker basis when Bjay Green and his assistant Richard Elmes resigned a week before Kingdon’s exit.

Hartill formerly player-managed Follands Reserves and the knock-on effect is that the Planemakers are now looking for someone to run their Wyvern League (East) side.

Jason Simmonds, who had been assisting Hartill, has taken on more of a commercial manager’s role, but the King’s Avenue club – currently rock-bottom of Sydenhams Division One – are in need of plenty more help behind the scenes.

Follands’ Garry Budden said: “I’m club secretary but I can’t go to away games with our first team because the reserves need someone to do the gate and tea hut.

“We could do with some extra matchday helpers too.”
